Air Ducts

The air ducts in your home provide a very important function. They circulate the air from your heating and cooling system into and out of each room, which allows for consistent interior comfort regardless of the season.

In fact, all of the air in your home circulates through the ducts multiple times a day. The air cycling through your ducts is the same air that completely fills your living environment…and it is the same air that you and your family breathe. As such, you want this air to be as clean as possible.
There are many benefits to having your air ducts professionally cleaned, the top five of which are listed below:

Duct Repair & Replacement

If your ducts are leaking, undersized, or poorly installed, your furnace and AC will work overtime and not be as efficient.

It will be difficult for you to stay comfortable and you will experience poor air quality. Duct work matters!

Contact the ESI Heating & Cooling to help maintain your duct system efficient. If your system can not be repaired then our cost efficient Bay Area Air Duct Installation will be recommended.

You might think that designing a duct system is as easy as drawing lines on a piece of paper. However, there are many important factors that go into planning an adequate and efficient duct system that will properly distribute air throughout your home and keep it at a comfortable temperature. A well-designed duct system should provide balanced supply and return flow to maintain a neutral pressure within the house.

However, there are many important factors that go into planning an adequate and efficient duct system that will properly distribute air throughout your home and keep it at a comfortable temperature. A well-designed duct system should provide balanced supply and return flow to maintain a neutral pressure within the house.

Consider the following:

1. The duct work must be strategically mapped out in relation to the location of the HVAC unit in order to avoid long runs. Otherwise, your HVAC unit will have to work harder to push air to the right spaces.
2. A well-designed duct system will avoid sharp bends and crimping. Airflow will be restricted if air ducts are forced through tight areas or sharp corners in your home’s framework. Every single duct must have enough space.
3. Duct must be properly sealed in order to avoid air leaks. Poor sealing can limit the amount of air that is able to pass through or suck in air from the outside and reduce the efficiency of your system.
These are only three examples of the many factors that must be taken into consideration when designing an efficient duct system.

Air Duct Cleaning refers to the removal of dust and contaminants within the duct work. This includes the supply and return air ducts as well as the registers and diffuses in each room. Powerful vacuums whisk away all dust and debris, preventing it from re-circulating throughout the home.

There are many benefits to having your air ducts professionally cleaned, the top four of which are listed below:

No More Allergies

One of the biggest reasons homeowners choose to have their ducts cleaned during spring is because of the increase of pollen and other allergens in the air. Dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and even insects and rodents can live inside your ducts, wrecking havoc on the allergy sufferers in your home.

Anybody that suffers from airborne allergies knows they are a pain to deal with, especially when your indoor environment triggers them. No one wants to get dry eyes, an itchy throat, or a runny nose while watching TV with the family!

When allergens are trapped inside your ducts, it can be impossible to find relief from allergy symptoms when relaxing at home. Dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming can help, but you need to deal with the source of the issue to see results.

Getting your ducts cleaned by ESI Heating & Cooling on a yearly basis prevents allergens from spreading throughout your home when you turn on your air conditioner. By removing the root of the problem, your home’s indoor air will be less likely to trigger allergic reactions during the spring.

Lingering Smells Gone

A less commonly known benefit of duct cleaning is its ability to reduce lingering smells in your home. Every home has a particular scent, and your ducts can contribute to how your home smells to your family and guests.

Bacteria and mold are often found inside duct work, which can cause unpleasant odors. Small rodents such as mice also sometimes make their way into duct systems, leaving behind droppings or even dying inside. A dead mouse is a smell you won’t forget!

Pet dander, tobacco smoke, and cooking smells can all build up in your ducts as well, causing strong odors that are tough to erase. Anyone who’s ever burnt something in the kitchen knows how hard stinky smells can be to remove from their home. Duct cleaning will remove pollutants from your ducts that are causing nasty odors.

Lower Energy Use

When you turn on your air conditioner, cold air cycles through your duct system and spreads throughout your home. If your ducts are clogged with dust and debris, your HVAC system has to use extra energy to force the air through the ducts.

The ENERGY STAR PROGRAM estimates that about 20% of the air that moves through your duct system is lost due to leaks and duct issues. When your HVAC system is forced to work harder to cool your home because of dirty ducts, your energy use goes up—and so does your monthly bill.

By getting your air ducts cleaned during the spring, you can keep your system efficient and your energy bills low during the summer.

Cleaner Home

As mentioned above, your ducts can accumulate dust, mold, pollen, and any number of contaminants that make their way into your home. Since air cycles through your duct system, the dust and debris in your ducts will too. If you’ve ever noticed your home getting suspiciously dusty every week, this is probably why.

Getting your ducts cleaned prevents pollutants from entering your home over and over again, creating a cleaner environment overall. This is a great benefit for pet owners that have to deal with loose fur and dander (or for people that just hate dusting!).
